As educators, we like to believe we are working together with colleagues, students, and parents for a common set of goals, in a setting we often describe as a community, or even a family. Yet sometimes, like other communities and families, we become involved in conflict: either the slow, unacknowledged kind that subtly undermines our work; or the sudden, explosive kind that challenges our assumptions about our world.

Unfortunately, there is usually little in our training, and perhaps less in our worldview, that equips us to manage these situations. This two-day workshop is intended to help educators to:

  • Examine the causes of conflict, and the roots in our social nature that produce, exacerbate, and prolong conflict.

  • Understand our own ways of responding to conflict, and when these habits help or hinder our peacemaking efforts.
  • Learn and practice proven strategies to acknowledge, and to minimize, contain, and resolve conflict.
  • Become familiar with conflict styles; identify the influence of style behavior in managing conflict
  • Practice conflict analysis: positions, interests and needs, identifying options
  • Practice tools for active listening
  • Practice nonviolent communication and question-posing for effectiveness
